Etsy Inspired Challenge #100

Cathy Walters is the featured shop this week at the Etsy Inspired Challenge; she makes the MOST beautiful pendants; I would really love to have one of these, so I'll be entering several times.  Here are two that I used for my inspiration:




I just love the collage feel that she uses, with text and antiqued backgrounds.  Here is my entry:


I found this beautiful antique nest print at The Graphics Fairy.  I chose to accent the blues in it, so I framed it and the sentiment thinly in blue, and colored the formerly tan eggs blue with colored pencils.  I also added some text here and there on the print, and stamped some ferns on the card base to pull them out from the print.  The sentiment is computer-generated; it is the title of Cathy's green pendant.  Lastly I attached a little feather to my card.

Supplies: Hero Arts LP123 Artistic Windows (text), LL040 Woodland Ferns
